The New York Times Continued Hatred of all things Pro-LifeIn the July 9, 2011 edition of the New york Times, A.G. Sulzberger writes another puff piece on another abortionist. This time the subject of the sympathetic article is Mila Means, a "struggling" "physician" who is trying to capitalize on the death of the notorious abortionist George Tiller in the battleground city of Wichita, Kansas.
The Times is well known for its abortion favorable reporting and its avoidance of all things truthful when it comes to presenting the pro-life position.
Years ago the Times wrote a glowing article on convicted abortionist Brian Finkel of Phoenix. In that article the reporter lamented all of the struggles the gun toting abortionist had to face because of the law suits filed against him for medical malpractice. Of course it would be Finkel's sexual assaults on his patients that would eventually land him on state prison. However the Times never reported the convictions or later the failure of his appeals and only mentioned the arrests in a small note in 2002.
We have been reminded of the silence of the media as to the dark side of the abortion industry this past year with the horrific events in Pennsylvania, Indiana, Tennessee, Kansas, and Texas. And these locations just scratch the surface.
Add to the mix the illegal operations of Planned parenthood and there is much serious investigative work for the national press to do. But unfortunately, the press is more interested in the emails of Sarah Palin and the gyrations of celebrity types than serious journalism.
The demise of modern journalism is rooted in the failure to embrace objective truth. Relativism offers an alluring temptation to compromise the truth and facts in favor of advancing one's ideological agenda. The ultimate danger is that when one is so encumbered by a perceived reality, it is almost impossible to find one's way out of the morass.
